Volunteer with the Alachua County Crisis Center

The Alachua County Crisis Center is currently recruiting volunteers to answer our local crisis hotline, as well as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. 

The Alachua County Crisis Center provides free and confidential crisis response services to Gainesville and the surrounding community, almost all of which are provided by highly trained volunteers. 

Volunteering with the Crisis Center is a great way to support our community and those in need, while also learning valuable communication skills you can use for the rest of your life.  

Training starts on Saturday, Jan. 27, and takes over 60 hours during the course of eight weeks. 

Volunteers learn crisis intervention and suicide prevention skills, which prepares them to answer phones on the National Suicide Prevention Hotline (988) and our local crisis hotline. 

The training is free and is conducted entirely online. 

The first step to getting involved in training is to submit the online application. 

If you  have questions about training, or if you would like to invite us to speak at a meeting of an organization, please contact our training coordinator Kevin Sosa at (352) 264-6781 or ksosa@alachuacounty.us.
